Good morning! We have a light morning of Kansas City Chiefs news for you today. Be sure to keep checking back while we wait to see if Poe and Bowe sign before training camp (fingers crossed). Enjoy!
"I'm not saying we didn't try to get some veterans," Crennel said. "We had some guys in who made decisions to go other places. As it works out, we've got a younger roster, so we'll coach those guys and try to get them better quickly."
So no, don't get too wrapped up in the Chiefs' relative dearth of experience. The team will get by without reaching out to the city's teenage babysitter community.
Kansas City Chiefs' Youth Won't Worry Romeo Crennel from NFL.com
The native of Osaka Prefecture, who is based in Los Angeles, has flown to NFL cities, from Chicago, to New York, to Foxboro, Massachusetts, to Green Bay, Wisconsin, to visit the teams' offices - without an appointment - to hand out his highlight DVDs and negotiate with them in the hope of earning a chance for a private workout. (He even went to the house of Robert Kraft, the owner of the New England Patriots, though he wasn't there.)
The long, coast-to-coast journey sometimes exhausts him, but at the same time it's given him some fruitful learning experiences. For instance, Inoue got the chance to train with New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow and Kansas City Chiefs tight end Tony Moeaki on different occasions in Los Angeles.

Kansas City Chiefs:
After beating the Packers last year, Romeo Crennel was no longer just interim HC, he was Officially the Head Coach. Their defense looks scary, and with Matt Cassel returning from injury, and the addition of former Madden Cover winner Peyton Hillis and Jamaal Charles returning from his own injury, they have a two headed monster in the backfield. That coupled with Dwayne Bowe and Steve Breaston on the outside, this offense could possibly be just like the 2010 Chiefs.

Trumaine Johnson faced competition from just about every angle.
SWAC defenses tried every week - and more often than not failed - to stop Grambling's top receiver in the early 1980s, and he also had a variety of weapons on his own teams with whom to contend for touches...
...Johnson credits the competition in practice, including fellow 2012 Legends inductee Albert Lewis, for much of his success.
"Me and Albert, we were roommates," he said. "I'm a wide receiver. He's a defensive back. And we had some competitive practice sessions and were really good friends.

"Imagine sitting in a hot tuxedo waiting for it to be your turn," says Jon. "We were pretty sweaty at the end of it." That was their audition. Grandma sure would be proud.
